This symposium will focus on content and discussions regarding the current and future impacts of hydropower on food and cultural fisheries with a specific emphasis on impacts to indigenous and underrepresented communities.  The symposium will consist of a combination of indigenous environmental art (e.g., indigenous short films discussing hydropower and food/cultural fisheries impacts), an expert panel of indigenous leaders discussing food and cultural fisheries in relation to hydropower, and several formal research and policy talks on issues surrounding monitoring, mitigation (such as fish passage effectiveness), and metrics of food and cultural fisheries impacted by hydropower.
